The other night I made spaghetti and although you can't tell from the picture, Oliver loved it. He had it all over the place, his hair, ears, up the nose, and even his diaper was stained orange! Actually the reason why he is not happy in the picture is because he ate it all and there was nothing left.

Oliver is becoming such an active little guy. All he wants to do is play and when it is time for bed he gets upset because he still wants to play. He is also a daredevil, and as I type this he is standing on some of his toys trying to get over the baby gate(don't worry, he is no where close to getting over, and I just moved the toys out of the way). He is standing all by himself and even walking with his little shopping cart that we got the other day. With all this of course, comes a lot of falls, some with some bumps and bruises:( I can't believe in a little over a month he is going to be a year old!

Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

The past couple weeks have been super busy. For the past week and a half I have been on vacation, and have another week off! It is actually the rest of my FMLA leave from when I had Oliver. I did not take all of it after I had him, and have to take it before his first birthday, or I will loose it. I didn't want it to go to "waste" so I decided to take it now.

The first week I just stayed around Fresno, hanging out with my mom and did a little bit of shopping. Then came last weekend and this past week. Where do I even begin? On Friday night my sister came into town for Megan's bridal shower that was on Sunday. Saturday we had a girls night with some of Megan's friends that came into town for the shower. We went to an amazing new restaurant Elements. It was really good and have decided the next time Katie and Eric are in town we are going to all go there for dinner.

Sunday was Megan's shower and it was beautiful! It was at her aunts house and as always it was so much fun and she got some really nice gifts. At around 4 that day me, Katie, and Oliver headed up to Walnut Creek. We arrived around 6:30 and once we got the kids to bed we went out at got a late dinner. I called Joey's mom to let her know that we were in town and that I wanted to meet up with her later on Monday after she got home from work. She said she was not feeling well, but that she would give me a call.

Monday morning after Katie dropped Matthew off at school me, Katie, Jonathan, and Oliver went to Starbucks for some coffee. That is where I got the call that Joey's mom was in the hospital! Bob wanted to know if Allison could hang out with us, and of course we said yes(Matthew and Jonathan love Allison, and she is such a big help with them). Bob dropped Allison off and that is when I found out that Sheryl had kidney stones and she was in A LOT of pain. I was suppose to come back to Fresno on Wednesday, but Joey really wanted to see his mom. So I decided to come home Tuesday and tomorrow we are headed back up to Walnut Creek for the weekend. We are planning on leaving tomorrow after Joey gets off of work at 2, then we are going to go into the city on Saturday. Oliver has not experienced San Francisco yet, and it has been a while since me and Joey have been.

Pictures will come a little later...

Happy 3rd Anniversary

Today is our 3rd Anniversary!!! I can't believe how fast it has gone by, and how our lives have changed in the last 3 years.

Our Wedding Day June 3, 2006

Look how young(and skinny!!!) we both look in the first picture! The wedding picture is a little dark because of the power outage, but is my favorite picture of us from that day.

Joey took the day off today, and I am on vacation so we are spending a nice day together. I think we are going to start the day with taking Oliver to the park, then it is off to Home Depot(Joey's new favorite store) to get plants for the backyard. Joey and his dad worked so hard the other day getting all the bricks laid for the patio, and also the retaining wall bricks for the planter box area. As soon as we get the flowers planted I will post a picture. Later tonight my mom is going to come over and watch Ollie while we go out to dinner and a movie!
